correct! :-)

Today I followed Matt Bittner's advice to cut the Mister Kit with Future and 
a drop of windshield wiper fluid (is that a surfactant, or just to improve 
the flavor?). It covered well, and now I'm waiting for it to cure for a 
while to see how tough it is. I also measured the contents of a  bottle and 
got a fraction under 1/2 oz (some had stuck to the side of the bottle), so 
if you have that 3/4 inch of paint, nothing has been lost to evaporation. I 
used an old Aztek airbrush for the test and found that the Mister Kit bottle 
will fit the Aztek siphon cap, designed for Modelmaster jars. I agree that 
the size of the bottle does seem odd, but it certainly makes stirring the 
paint easier.
